    Excellent. You hit the nail on the head that the current retirees simply did not save enough to provide for what is an inevitable event. I propose that we scrap all government social programs. The people will be better off. If the system isn’t changed, I predict a collapse or a revolt.

    Pretending there was a “fund” that many think exists…. begs the statistic how much was paid by taxpayers for the purpose of social retirement and health benefits?

    In other words how much was paid into the phantom “fund” compared to actual cost?
